New York: Oxford University Press, 2002. Octavo, black and white illustrations, softcover.
Reconstructing past environments is critical in evaluating modern environmental change and making predictions for the future. Records can be found in a range of natural sources, including microfossils, and their analysis can make important contributions to studies of contemporary global environmental issues such as climate change, water pollution and acidification. This first text aims to explain the practical applications of the analysis of microfossils. Including pedagogic features such as chapter summaries, highlighted key words, annotated guides to further reading and an appendix of statistical techniques, the book is extensively illustrated throughout and includes a wide range of fully international examples and case studies.
